Chestnut Mountain

  I learned to ski at Chestnut Mountain, it's really good to go and learn at a local place like this before you go to the Rockies, so you don't waste time on the bunny slope over there. Says Lisa Taylor.

The nearest ski mountain in possession of a more towering drop from top to bottom is 77 miles away. This ski mountain has 17 slopes, and they are totally fun. This ski resort has 4 different ski lifts, and they are in magnificent shape. The 4 feet of white
    snow that falls here per winter is not exceptionally high, but it's reasonable. This ski resort has a comparatively modest selection of slopes and few ski lifts. There are many splendid hotels to pick from, and if you make reservations
in advance of a trip, you're all set. Chestnut Mountain has a much lower than average share of hard ski slopes and a much higher than average fraction of green and blue slopes. The 475 foot drop is unsurprisingly not that much to boast about, but all the other good characteristics of Chestnut Mountain compensate for it. Chestnut Mountain is an ordinary size ski area with an average altitude difference when compared to other mid west ski mountains. This ski  
mountain obtains less than average snow every ski season. This ski mountain has 139 acres of skiable land, and all of it makes for splendid skiing. A load of skiers journey up here from Clinton, especially on the weekends. Some exercise and a chance to spend some time in the wilderness beats anything. You could be into skiing or snowboarding, or both, doesn't matter, around here, you'll run into scores of glorious ski resorts. This is a great location for everyone with loads of intermediate or beginner ski trails. The wintertime in Illinois is so wonderful for snowboarding and skiing.
